Lorenzo Ward and his staff were in Austin
Did anyone see this?
South Carolina defensive coordinator Lorenzo Ward and his staff were in Austin last Friday, Saturday and Sunday to talk strategy with new Texas coach Charlie Strong and his defensive staff.
With the departure of defensive ends Jadeveon Clowney and Chaz Sutton, Ward is looking at using three down linemen more this season, one fewer than usual for his 4-2-5 defense.
"We're just not going to have the horses at defensive end as we have had in the past," Ward says.
Ward's visit traces back to he and Strong's long-time friendship. "Charlie's probably done as good of a job as anybody we've seen in the three-down, but still use a lot of that four-down personnel," Ward says.
